Treatment Overview

Radiesse in San Francisco Builds on Your Natural Beauty

The passing of time chips away at our natural assets. Instead, take time to erase wrinkles, folds, and more as you replenish volume with Radiesse®!

Unlike other dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid (HA) to add volume while boosting collagen production, Radiesse is made with the stiffer calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) gel filler, which gives stronger support wherever you need it.

Benefits of Radiesse in San Francisco

Added Volume

As a filler, Radiesse lifts and contours skin, adding volume immediately while boosting collagen production for future volume enhancement.

Long-Lasting

The Radiesse CaHA gel filler is stiffer than other HA gel fillers, so it gives better support with longer lasting=results—from 12 to 18 months.

Skin Health

Along with the boost in your body’s natural collagen production, Radiesse also promotes improved skin strength, elasticity, and fullness.

Facial Contouring

Radiesse can be molded to accentuate your features, acting as an excellent nonsurgical and minimally-invasive alternative to face implants.

The Radiesse Process

Step 1: Consultation

Your treatment starts with a personal, one-on-one consultation. We’ll talk about your concerns and goals, and we’ll examine your treatment area.

Step 2: Planning

If Radiesse in San Francisco best addresses your needs, we’ll customize your personal treatment plan and schedule your appointments.

 

Step 3: Treatment

After cleansing your treatment area, your injector will use a washable marker to mark your injection sites. Next, they inject the Radiesse.

 

Step 4: Placement

After the injections process, the Radiesse may be gently manipulated to accentuate your chosen features while ensuring it is properly placed.

Step 5: Recovery

You may want to very gently apply an ice pack or cold compress to your treatment area. Refrain from doing strenuous activity for 24 hours after.

"I am hooked. My skin was glowing, so smooth and continues to glow post-treatment."

After many months without a skin care treatment, I went in yesterday for my first dermaplane and hydrafacial experience yesterday based on a friends recommendation. Monica was my super esthetician and she is amazing. …

"I am somewhat of a beauty junkie, truth be told."

I’ve been getting facials for years and when a friend recommended Elinea, which I thought was strictly a MedSpa, I thought why not? I’ve been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. …

"I am hooked. My skin was glowing, so smooth and continues to glow post-treatment."

After many months without a skin care treatment, I went in yesterday for my first dermaplane and hydrafacial experience yesterday based on a friends recommendation. Monica was my super esthetician and she is amazing. She is very knowledgeable about products and treatments. I had a bunch of skincare questions and Monica was really informative. I know there are other advanced procedures at Elinea such as Botox, injectables, etc but for me and for now, I am happy taking small steps in my journey to great skin. Elinea is a warm and beautiful new space in the Castro. I am booking my next skincare treatment now!

I've been getting facials for years and when a friend recommended Elinea, which I thought was strictly a MedSpa, I thought why not? I've been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. The next day, I looked seriously five years younger. My skin was taut, supple and super hydrated...many fine lines were minimized. I'm definitely going to get this treatment again. Monica knows her stuff.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions About Radiesse

For most of our Elinea Med Spa patients, the Radiesse injection process only takes about 15 to 30 minutes—making it a great “lunch time” aesthetic treatment. The session time varies, depending on the number of treatment areas, the amount of Radiesse needed, and whether time will be needed for your provider to sculpt the injection to accentuate your natural features.

Once placed and set, Radiesse should last from 9 to 14 months.

To achieve optimal results, you will need 2 to 3 Radiesse treatment sessions. We space the treatment sessions 4 to 6 weeks apart so that the Radiesse has had time to settle and any resulting swelling has subsided. That gives your injector a realistic view of results, and from there they can assess where—and if—more Radiesse is needed to accomplish your goals.

Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA) as their active ingredient, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body.

Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres, which have been suspended in a sodium carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier. Regular HA has more of an angular composition, which has an elevated chance for irritation than the rounded Radiesse composition.

The CaHA in Radiesse also stimulates collagen generation in the injected area. Because it’s stiffer, it provides a better molecular scaffold upon which your body can naturally build more connective tissue. This encourages moisture retention for more hydrated skin while simultaneously restoring volume and creating a healthier, more youthful look.
